    go to the classified section and click on the red scam notice at the top right.

    Your best bet is to just ignore them.

    Seriously a guy from the UK would have better english and who would pay 5K for a boat only worth 1K.

    This is the info from the link:

    The Over-Pay Scam!
    If someone says they will over-pay for your classified item, chances are it’s a scam!
    How It Works

    A scammer will express interest in whatever you have for sale and eventually offer to over-pay.

    This usually comes in one of two forms:

    1. The scammer, usually from overseas, expresses interest in your item for sale. When you agree on terms, he indicates payment will be made by third party cashier’s check (first clue that this is a scam). In fact, the scammer has a friend in the US who owes him some money, so the friend will send a certified cashier’s check that includes the amount needed to pay you plus what is owed the scammer.

    For example, a $7500 check would be sent to cover a $1500 used car. These checks usually are drawn on a US bank but, strangely enough, arrive via an International Fed Ex! The scammer really needs the extra cash ASAP (i.e. before you find out that the cashier’s check is a counterfeit), so he offers to let you keep an additional few hundred bucks for your time and trouble to arrange the wire. Well, you are no dummy, you think to yourself. You’ll deposit the check, wait 4 business days, and then wire the money. The problem is that your fake check must travel all the way to the institution whose name appears on it before they stamp a big ole COUNTERFEIT on it. That will take at least a week and usually ten days. The funds will be subtracted from your account in full. The scammer will never arrange to have your silly item for sale shipped…

    2. A scammer will contact you and offer to buy your $3000 car but must pay with a "refund payment" from another customer who cancelled their order. Again, a cashier’s check for $9000 will be sent and you must immediately wire the difference.

    What I like to do with these guys is lead them on for as long as possible – that way I waste plenty of their time and it can get pretty hilarious

    The horrible English is always a dead giveaway, this one is one of the worst I’ve ever seen!
